Rhinoceros Flea ?

A flea can jump 150 times its size. That is the equivalent of a person being able to jump up 1,000 feet in the air. The rhinoceros beetle can carry up to 850 times its weight on its back. This is equivalent to a person carrying over 50 mini-vans on their back. Now if there were a Rhinoceros Flea that could jump the equivalent of 1000 feet with 50 mini-vans on its back that would be impressive.. though rather hard luck on anything underneath it when it landed.
